Highlights

 
     
    You know a trip is amazing when just saying it out loud virtually confirms it. And when you say you are going on a 7 day splitboarding tour through the Swiss Alps in the canton of Valais, you can rest assured it is as amazing as it sounds.

    On this trip in Valais, you will climb, enjoy and descend several different 4000 plus metre peaks. Those peaks include Weissmeis (4,023m), Signalkuppe (4,554m), Dufourspitze (4,634m), and even a peak of your own choosing on the fifth day of the trip.

    However, what makes this trip so mesmerising is that you won’t just be visiting different peaks in Valais. You will also get the chance to visit and splitboard through different glaciers, including the Allalin glacier and the Lys glacier. In addition to the glaciers, you will also get to visit the highest building in all of Europe, the Margherita hut (4,554m). Moreover, you will get to spend some time in some of the most famous resort areas in the Alps, from Saas Fee to Zermatt, while also spending several nights in different mountain huts.

    When having an adventure in mountains as high as the ones found in Valais, there are going to be some challenges. As a result, it is important that participants on this trip have some previous mountaineering and splitboarding experience. You should also be in excellent physical condition as well.

    Are you looking for something more than just exciting splitboarding ascents? Are you looking for a genuine adventure? Then send me a request, come to Valais, and let me guide for 7 unforgettable days.
